all forms of struggle are equally valuable. How far one can push this approach without being charged with essentialism is a good question. Still, it seems to me that a critical, dialogical encounter between Nietzsche, Heidegger, and Foucault, such as the one suggested above, is needed to point the way “out the abyss” of our current cultural dilemmas to “a new and different way of thinking and being”—a way that leads beyond nihilism.
